The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I had the pleasure of a private lesson with Ron Convers recently and am now working to erase bad driving habits formed over 8 years of casual golf. in fifteen minutes, I learned a few techniques to help take my drive to the next level. I basically have to relearn how to tee. but, after working on it for a week or so, I see exactly why I needed to scrap and start anew. I am now crushing my mids as far as my drivers and my choice driver, the Valk, is flying at least forty ft farther than it was two weeks ago with the old form. I basically pretend I am ten ft. tall and throw my disc from shoulder height; it releases lower, but I have to feel it up there. My elbow is only slightly bent and carries no force on the disc. I am overcoming the fear of turning completely away from my target because this essential for maximum hip turn and weight shift. I am to the point that I can feel the disc pulling it self from my fingertips and I have regained the "S" that has been missing for at least five years, when I started trying to throw as opposed to just throwing. Ron hit the nail on the head when he told me I was trying to hard. I am using less force and better form to garner stronger drives from the tee. consistancy will be an issue until the muscle memory takes shape. I am having to think through every drive to keep my wrist up and fully turn my hips. backhand tee drives have been the sore spot of my game and I feel I am on my way to overcoming that weakness. Now I am going to have to pick up a few more mids and understable drivers to adjust to this improved style. I had better start looking discraft in honor of DGZen Master Ronvers... Thank you for taking the time.
